I have a list with 2 workflows enabled. I can select 'Enable workflow to start from the item menu' on both workflows separately, publish them separately and the option to run the workflow will appear. However when I select this option on both workflows and publish them both only one of the workflows appear.
They both have different labels and I've tried using multiple positions. Does anybody know if it is possible to add multiple workflows to the item menu list?
Solved! Go to Solution.
did you give different sequence numbers for that workflows? I could image giving them the same number results in this issue.
The sequence number represents the order in which your workflows will be shown in the item menu.
If that doesn't work, you can also use SharePoint designer to create a custom action (for example an action in your list item menu) and use this custom action to call your workflow. (Example to get you started: http://www.abelsolutions.com/creating-a-custom-action-in-2-steps-with-sharepoint-designer/)
I've encountered this challenge as well - and it was not fixed by using numbers 1, 2, 3 etc. in the item position box. There is a very clear use case for solving this problem: Present users with the ability to trigger important workflows in a more accessible way.
I've researched and experimented with this a bit, and I have managed to determine that there are some codes that can be used:
Top Position: 0
This really does solve a presentation challenge for multiple workflows that are much better presented one click away.
I'm really not sure why one of the following two options isn't taken by Nintex:
I also encountered this bug: only the last WF I published was displayed in the item menu (whereas it was configured in three workflows).
I had to deactivate the possibility of starting each workflow from the item menu, published them, then reactivate each workflow to start from the item menu and published them again. After that each menu item appeared in the item context menu.
